    I need to fill the following spots (what I currently have is shown + my bench):

    RB - Rashard Mendenhall
    RB - Beanie Wells
    WR/RB - Jahvid Best
    WR - Calvin Johnson
    WR - Deion Branch

    Bench
    Kenny Britt
    LeGarrette Blount
    Chad Ochocinqo
    Julio Jones

    I kinda want to find a way to get Britt and/or Blount in but I feel like Branch could have a monster game against SD. Britt might do well but I'm thinking we don't score a lot on the Ravens.

    Play Britt for sure. Hasselbeck may have a interception but that means we're throwing a lot. Kenny is defiantly his primary target.

    I've got Ocho, thinking about keeping him on my bench.

    RB- Mendenhall
    RB- Blount
    WR- Calvin
    WR- Britt
    Flex- Best


    That's what I'd go with. Brady tends to spread the ball around so much I never feel too confident in any NE receiver not named Wes Welker.

    Of course I told TJ to bench Steve Smith last week so whadda I know....

    Branch won't have many monster games. Brady has so many quality targets and half of his throws probably go to his TEs. If Hernandez or Gronkowski are still available in your league, I'd scoop one of them up.

    I like Hernandez over Gronkowski. He is more of a hybrid TE (WR like), similar to Cook. I've drafted Hernandez in most of my leagues.

    I'd sit Best for Britt and Wells for Blount. I think Kenny is getting to the point of playing him regardless of his matchup.

    I'm torn on whether I should play Jordy Nelson against the Panthers or Tim Hightower against the Cardinals.

    I'm the opposite. I took Gron in most of my leagues. I expect Hernandez to get the most targets (despite week 1) but think Gron will get far more red zone looks.

    Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with either one of them though.

    I would start Blount. I think he will have a good week this week since he is not playing the 08 Titans, I mean Detroit defense this week

    Britt and Julio Jones should both be starting.

    Ochocinco is persona non grata i would not have him on my team. He is the 5th option in that passing game.
